A router will always do fragmentation *unless* the sender hat set the DF (don't fragment) bit.

Depends on how you define router. There are plenty of "L3 switches" and similar boxes that will forward packets based on IP address, but won't perform fragmentation.

See RFC 1812 ... "Fragmentation, as described in [INTERNET:1], MUST be supported by a router."
